Pia Honored

U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage has been apparently picking up some accolades in her native land after coaching the USA to the 2008 Olympic gold medal. Of course, Pia is too humble to tell anyone back here about it and since we can't read the Swedish articles, we're not quite sure what she won, but after becoming privy to some info, we got out of her that she was named Swedish Soccer Coach of the Year and is up for another prestigious award for top leader of the year for all sports in Sweden. There has been a steady stream of Swedish media coming by Los Angeles to interview her this year and a reporter from Swedish daily Norra Skåne chatted her up after training today. We hope that if Sundhage wins another award (perhaps a Nobel Prize?... they are given out in Stockholm every year after all) that we'll find out about it a little sooner.
